Homemade fruit roll ups are an easy snack to have when you're on the go or for an extra special lunchbox treat. They are sweet, chewy, and made entirely from fruit. Skip the store-bought fruit snacks in favor of these easy homemade fruit roll ups.
Servings: 1 baking sheet
Ingredients
  • 3 cups fruit
  • maple syrup, to taste
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to the lowest temperature possible (it will most likely be around 150°F/65°C).

  2. Puree all ingredients in a blender until completely smooth. (If you're using seedy fruit, such as raspberries or strawberries, you might want to strain the puree through a nut milk bag or a cheesecloth, but it's not necessary).
  3. Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with silicone mat. and spread it evenly into a 1/8″ (3 mm) thick layer.

  4. Dehydrate for 6-8 hours or until the center is no longer tacky. If the edges look like they’re getting crispy, you can cut those off later, or brush them with a little water or juice during the baking process to rehydrate.
  5. Peel off the silicone mat and cut into strips. Store the strips in a mason jar to stay fresh for several weeks. (If the strips are still a little sticky when you cut them, you might want to wrap them in a piece of plastic wrap (or parchment paper) so they don't stick to each other when you store them).
  6. Store leftover fruit roll ups wrapped in an airtight container in a dark cool place for 2-4 weeks.
    For longer term storage, freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
